"Yung Wing (Rong Hong) first came to the United States in 1847 and graduated from Yale in 1854, becoming the first person to hold an American B.A. degree in Chinese History. At Yung Wing's suggestion, China sent another 120 students to Hartford, Connecticut, to train them in Western knowledge. Professor Kao's lecture will discuss the acculturation of the students in American and later the demand imposed on them by the Qing government." - ChorSwan Ngin, professor of Anthropology at Cal State L.A.
